A Writer's Magic

Life can be so strange. You do the same things every day. You wake up, eat some food, do your personal “daily routine,” eat some more food and go to bed. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just get tired of it. I get lost in this world of never-changing life, and don’t allow myself to do anything exciting. I’ve always wanted to be an exciting person, but I’ve never had the courage.
That is why I write.
I write to escape into another world, so that I can create a new routine for a new person in a new life. I can be that person I’m writing about, and that means that I can be… whoever I want. The only limits are my imagination, and I’ve been told that I have a very big imagination.
I can be a hero, or a villain. I could be a human or an animal. I could be an alien. I could be anything that I want. I can go anywhere I want.
I’ve been in sword fights, flown on dragons, and ridden on giant elephants (yes, even bigger than the regular ones!). I’ve fought off giant squids, giant men, wizards, kings, and queens. I’ve traveled to distant lands and saved thousands of lives. I’ve become a hero to millions, and an enemy to hundreds; and they can always count on my return.
That’s why I love to write. It’s why I love to just go to my room and be alone with my thoughts. It’s why I stay up late typing away on my computer.

Some people escape by reading, but I escape by writing.

Things I've Learned from Watching My Mom and Dad

I've learned a lot from watching my Mom and Dad's marriage. It's led me to know what I want to look for in a marriage, eventually, when I'm older, if I ever DO get married. Their marriage helps me know what a marriage is really about, and I couldn't thank them more for that.

You see, a lot of girls my age dream about marrying the perfect guy. Living in the perfect house. Having a lot of money and clothes and having a happy family and good, stable jobs. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, but I think it's a bit unrealistic. It's not impossible, I suppose (other than the perfect guy, thing. Nobody's perfect! *Hannah Montana song now stuck in my head forever*), but in order to have all those things, you need to have a few others.

So, here's what I want for my future, if I ever get married.

Jesus. Not every marriage has Jesus, and a lot of them do okay without Him. But it's a lot harder, I think. Without Jesus, who do you have as your role …

Girl Talk: Makeup

I recently got my first tube of lipstick. I was very excited, as I see makeup the same was as I see colored pencils - it's nowhere close to easy, but the process is enjoyable and fun, and it usually turns out pretty in the end (unless I totally mess up and have to start all over). The lipstick I got is a brighter color than I thought it was going to be, but I like it all the same.


My little sister doesn't seem too thrilled with the development. Jokingly, she calls it red (although I am CONVINCED it's just a bright/deep pink), and says things like "oh, you don't need it! Why are you wearing it?!" 

Since all of her comments are in jest, I take no offense at them. I play along and I laugh, and I pretend to defend myself as if I really care. But the more she does it, the more I realize that girls have to face this in real life all the time.

People tell you things like "that color's not good on you" or " way too much makeup there, hon." If you…

Book Review: To Kill a Mockingbird

Book: To Kill a Mockingbird
Author: Harper Lee

I recently read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee for school and I decided to do a book review on it. So here's a quick description of the story, in case you haven't heard much about it:

 Living in a small town called Maycomb and experiencing the fun of summer and the sufferings of school, a young girl named Scout Finch watches her father Atticus Finch, an attorney, risking everything - his job, reputation and even his life - to prove the innocence of Tom Robinson, a black man accused of a crime he didn't commit. 


The characters - Atticus Finch, Scout Finch, Jem Finch and Calpurnia, as well as others - were well-rounded and had a sense of reality to them that I know as a writer I struggle to create. They spoke, acted and thought like one would think them to, but not in an overdone or annoying way.

I loved the perspective on the story that it had. Written in light of the events of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, it has an …
